SSAHK Advanced Surgical Workshop 2017 (287)_edited.jpg

Suturing Workshops

Our suturing workshops provide a rare opportunity for medical students to get early exposure and hands-on experience on different suturing and knot-tying techniques. In small classes, our participants will learn from practicing surgeons and get real-time feedback on their progress. Participants would also have the chance to interact with surgeons from different surgical specialities.

Open to HKU MBBS and CUHK MBChB students.
